WOLVERTON GARDEN FAIR 3 SEPTEMBER 2022

Sep 12, 2022

We decided on an early start to hopefully avoid the very long queues that build up for this show. We were the only car on the single lane that runs up to Wolverton so I was quite pleased until we came upon a lorry loaded with feed facing 3 cars that were reversing away from it but up towards me. A quick change of gear and fingers and everything else crossed we wouldn’t meet anything coming round the bend. We made it into the first field entrance we came to. This road is supposed to be a one way road for the show but the driver obviously thought otherwise.

We were finally on site by 9am and, after setting up the seats and tea stuff we sat and watched. We weren`t expecting many to arrive because the Gallucci show is also on this weekend. Surprisingly, by 11am there were 24 cars on show, the organisers will be delighted.

On the path down to the classic cars field there were tractors, static engines, traction engines, military vehicles and some pre-war vehicles. The only criticism was that the grass hadn`t been cut and there were quite a few deep ruts that we couldn’t see when driving over them. Quite a few said they would be going on the Sunday too.

Even though there were no signs to say we were in this field, the public came down In very good numbers. They all seemed very interested in the cars which is always very good to hear and lots stopped to chat to the owners. We left at around 2pm, but on our way home we passed another couple of cars on their way to the show so a good turn out.
